England star Sam Underhill picks his all-time dream back-row

England flanker Sam Underhill has revealed his all-time dream back-row for www.bathrugby.com – and it’s AWESOME.

He was born in Dayton, Ohio, played twice for Gloucester before crossing the Severn Bridge to play for Ospreys while studying at Cardiff University. He switched to Bath on a three-year deal in 2017.

Underhill featured on the bench for the first three games of the 2018 Six Nations, and took part in the November internationals.

He has become a regular under head coach Eddie Jones and was part of the squad that reached the 2019 Rugby World Cup final.

BLINDSIDE FLANKER: JERRY COLLINS – New Zealand

Collins won 48 caps for the All Blacks having made his debut in 2001, scoring five tries during a career that saw him become one of the most feared back-row players on the pitch due to his sheer strength and physicality.

He was considered to be one of hardest tacklers in rugby history, along with Brian Lima

DID YOU KNOW? Collins was a cousin of former All Blacks captain and Hurricanes teammate Tana Umaga
